Text description provided by the architects. The originality of this project, for public transport in Nîmes (France), on two different, is its realisation in two interlocking parts, yet designed by two different teams. Under the shade structure, designed by the agency Gautier + Conquet, in charge of the urban project, Y.Architectes imagined three small buildings of  different heights, on a total area of 290 square meters built. The challenge was to find a constructive system which can fit under the broad structure previously built and adapt facades to different program scenarios. On one site, the first building to the west, is composed of technical spaces and offices. The second one contains a restroom and bathrooms.The last one, is a bike parking. No more excuses for not using public transport!

The three volumes are constructed with a metal structure designed in order to offer interchangeable depending panels depending on uses. They are composed of wood walls, hinding doors and technical areas, and white perforated steel panels as a contemporary moucharabieh, for transparency and sun protection.
